About Me




Hi. I'm Kara.


I'm a wife. I married my husband in October of 2009. I'm a mom to three, great kids (ages 5, 3 and 1). We make our home in Oklahoma where we are amateur gardeners and lovers of ethnic food, traveling, running, and coffee. Most importantly, we love Jesus and just want people to know Him. 

I started writing this little blog a few years ago to journal what I was learning as I grew as a Christ follower, wife and mother. If you are looking for a mess-of-a-girl in need of Jesus who is writing about her stumbles along the way, you've found the right place. I try as hard as I can to write here three times a week... but sometimes sick kids happen and life gets away from me. I am also fortunate enough to write for Mom's Milk Boutique, Top Christian Books online, and the Oklahoma City Moms Blog.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to comment or email me at karagaris at yahoo dot com. I'd love to connect with you!


My husband and I. We met while serving together in youth ministry together in 2008.

My favorite kids ever.

  1. Thank you for your recent post on Desiring God. I'm engaged and have known about my fiancĂ©s past addiction since the day we started dating, but have recently felt a lot of the things you described in your article and you answered SO many questions I've had rattling around in my head. Thank you for the time you've spent with the Lord in this season and for being willing to share your experience with strangers. Thank you also, to your husband, for his vulnerability with letting you write publicly about this. I am very grateful. ❤

    1. I am thankful as well for the post on Desiring God! S Goss, I pray you can work out these issues with your fiancé ......in my case, I have been married for 28 years, and I am still struggling with not "measuring up". In the past, before I accepted the Lord, my husband and I watched porn together. I knew he looked at it before we were together, but just figured all men did and I just had to deal with it. I'm not certain if he looks at it anymore, but I struggle very much with body image issues. I notice he looks at other women's bodies, and when I confront him about it he denies it or says something to try and make me feel better. I need to read and re-read Kara's post to let God re-shape my thinking and my heart. It's the only way!

  2. Hi Kara,

    Thank you for your post on Desiring God. Pretty much the exact same thing happened to my husband and I....We weren't even a year married when I found out! While good in one way, there wasn't any honeymoon period. God has been at work, I love my husband and thankfully he is taking measures against it. However I still struggle and while we are receiving biblical counseling, the counsellor is mainly focusing on Sean and doesn't seem able to advise me on my struggles with hurt. There isn't anyone in our area to help counsel me and sometimes I really struggle to keep it together. I don't know what's wrong with me. Do you have any advise? Things are looking up so I don't know why I'm struggling so much.

    1. Sorry I didn't mean to include names...Slip of the fingers, you can't edit it once it's published.

    2. First of all, I don't know that anything is necessarily "wrong" with you. What do you mean by struggling to keep it together? You can email me at karagaris at yahoo dot com and we can follow up! :)
